Fast Food

But not THAT kind of fast food. YJDKIY hasn't been to the grocery store yet after a long weekend away, so tonight was completely from the pantry (and the freezer, and the fridge).

I'm pretty picky about soups....I don't like creamy, it has to be hearty and chunky, and typically the sodium (especially in canned kind) is way over a healthy limit. So, this package (what is it? It's not a can, not a box, not a jar...) of Pacific Natural Foods Creamy Butternut Soup has been in the cabinet for a while (they do make a low sodium version, but not in the small 2 serving size).

It's creamy, it's not hearty and it has 550 mg of sodium, which is kinda high, but manageable. Otherwise it's pretty decent. I love that I know what all the ingredients are (negative points for overuse of the word organic though!):
  • Organic butternut puree
  • Filtered water
  • Organic soymilk (filtered water, whole organic soybeans)
  • Organic evaporated cane juice
  • Sea salt
  • Organic expeller pressed canola oil
  • Organic rice flour
  • Natural flavor
  • Organic onion powder
  • Organic garlic powder
  • Organic ginger
  • Organic nutmeg
  • Organic cinnamon

To remedy this situation, I added black beans while heating, and topped with a little feta. Yum! Served with a side of frozen vegetables seasoned with lemon juice that I ended up saving for lunch tomorrow because I was so full from the soup! :)

Total prep time: 8 minutes!
